Which caliber for a medium rifle?

I am in the market for an AR or AK-pattern rifle. I am not sold on any of the major (or minor) calibers.
I am well versed with the Four Safety Rules, and even the Fifth.

I have lots of experience with 5.56 mm, .22 LR and .30 Carbine, does anyone have experience with Soviet or other calibers, and can make recommendations? I am comfortable with the M4 and M16 weapons systems, but am not totally sold on them (and would make some modifications.)
The rifle will be for three-gun and target shooting, out to ~500m. I am in the United States, but not in a particularly gun-restrictive State.
